I know about the fast ones, but are there any slow versions out there?

slowest ones are in the 90s...check out 03-29-90, 13-31-90 for versions with the saxamaphone...03-31-1991 and 06-17-1991 are outstanding as well...last really nice slow version is likely 05-21-1995...

if you don't like the 90s 06-18-1974 is your best best...not really slow per say...

Another "don't miss" slow version. Over 20 minutes of mellow but very inventive jamming with exceptional contributions from Hornsby, who adds a salsa feel at points in the jam:

*_edit: didn't notice that Stratocaster had already listed this. Worth re-emphasizing, however!

I always liked 5/13/83

The transition from Estimated seems like its going to be a quick one, but once they settle into the song it is a slower and extremely long version of Eyes - like almost 20 mintes long. Most other versions from '83 are overly hyper and short.

5/13/83 is one of my all time favorite shows that I attended. They played just about every song with a different vibe than the rest of '83. The raven cawing and diablical laughter at the end of the drums gets the crowd to crack up. They jammed so long that night that they didn't do an encore as they had already passed the UC Berkeley late night curfew...I wish they had skipped the encores more often.

The AUD recording is extremely good, there is a SBD source but like most early 80's SBDs Jerry is way down in the mix.

I remember this show well. Jerry seemed to be trying to get a little island groove going on this one. Stayed slow for a while but eventually the drummers sped it up

I remember 10/29/77 being slow for 1977, but thats not saying much. It's always been my favorite from that year.

Ditto--and it's only "slow" in tempo, in that it takes its time to build up to what intense and spectacular jamming of a "best of" variety.
